To bring life, practical function, and style to this typical builder basic box, I started with three key elements: an elegant headboard, a couple of dressers that are at the right height to form the bases of a custom vanity, and a gorgeous fabric from Tonic Living as jumping off point for color and patterns.
Being on a tight budget doesn't mean you have to sacrifice on quality and style. You just need to be patient and be a frequent visitor to your local HomeSense. Believe it or not, the camelback headboard in cotton/linen + nailhead trim, brass floor lamp from Ralph Lauren Home, black glass sculptural side table, and the Barbara Barry inspired cut velvet pillows, were amazing finds from HomeSense!
We also needed a piece of art to anchor a blank wall at the foot of the bed. With a little smart thinking, we were able to put up a captivating master piece with removable 3M hook using a a delightful cherry blossom fabric from Tonic Living and a canvas stretcher from the local craft store.
As for the client's favorite item in the bedroom: the vanity with a gorgeous view! If you are having trouble finding a vanity that's the right length, just buy two dressers and put a piece of board on top. The possibility is truly endless and I am loving the natural light!
As for my favourite shot, here she is!
